    Im in l.a. here and there and when i want the bestest cheapest room, with a ton of space, a small kitchen, and a big deck with a great view of the city, totally tranquil and really friendly I stay here.  the decor is very divorced dad at his new apartment.   but its like 150 a night to 200, its very secluded but close enough to the roosevelt to walk.  I prefer the apartments because there is an unheated pool and patio that is never crowded and you can walk right to Yamashiro sushi for food its literally ten steps to there from the apartments they also do a night bar that overlooks the pool with conversation pits and outdoor heaters.  This is not a fancy place like the beverly wilshire this is like camping in hollywood...and camping isn't for everybody.

    Such a confluence of feelings.  Spectacular service with food, gave me a cake for my birthday, gave us a calamari appetizer at our dinner at the beautiful Japanese restaurant, wonderful limonata when checking in, yet no help with our bags with my senior father and mother so the lack of elevator and no help....totally not cool.   Help came two minutes after we had struggled up the pretty scary stairs.  Not kidding.  Not cool.  View is totally worth the price, and we would pay a lot more if they would upgrade the rooms.  We have stayed at the renaissance at Hollywood and highland and looked on to this property thinking WOW...but until this is upgraded I cannot give a better rating than a 3 and a half, ramped up by the 5 for the unbelievably charming front office.

    Stellar customer service. Everyone who works here makes sure you are completely satisfied. Upon checkin was given an Italian sparkling lemon drink in champagne flute. SO cute. We were also upgraded to the nicest suite for no apparent reason. The staff made great suggestions for things for us to do. We ended up, per their suggestion, going to the Farmers Market...wine, flamenco guitars, all local nuts and fruits and chocolates. SOOOO fun. The pool is so exotic. It boasts a chinese pagoda, Will def go back. Keep up the great work. And, thanks for the unlimited snacks and wonderful breakfast!

    My fiance and I stayed here this past week and it was amazing. This hotel definitely enhanced our first week long vacation together. In fact I proposed at the Yamashiro the night we got there.

    The staff is beyond friendly, kudos to them because they were super friendly, very giving and understanding. The staff told us about the free snacks, held stuff for us, arranged cabs for us, and they even helped us book a shuttle at the end of our trip (which unfortunately I did not get to properly check out by getting a receipt since the shuttle guy was in a hurry... but I left the room keys in the room which I hope was OK!)

    PLUS since the hotel is on top of the hill, they have their own personal shuttle which will take you up and down for no extra cost or inconvenience! The drivers were all friendly and really chatted us up which made us feel at home.

    There was complimentary breakfast until 10 am (I just wish there were more seats for guests eating all at once) and snacks were 24/7. The free wi-fi was great, the only downside is that it did not reach up to our room. It was only in the Magic Castle part of the hotel, not the Hollywood Hills apartments.

    All I can say is, is that me and my fiance WILL be back and we will stay here exclusively whenever we are in L.A. Thanks to the staff and everybody!

    The Hollywood Hills Hotel is almost the right name for this place...
    1. It is in Hollywood.
    2. It is on a Hill.
    3. It is NOT a Hotel- at least not what you would normally think a hotel would be, but that can either be good or bad- depending on what your preference is.

    The "Hotel" section of the property is actually a collection of converted studios and one bedroom suites that were previously occupied by permanent tenants. A long driveway flanked by a row of parking spots on each side separates the "Hotel" section from the permanent residences that are still in operation. Although this situation was a bit odd, I personally didn't have a problem with this arrangement, nor did I see or hear any of the permanent tenants.

    My boyfriend and I stayed here because it was on the lodging list for our friend's wedding. The venue was just a short jaunt up the stairs outside of our room to the ceremony and reception at the Yamashiro Restaurant.

    We were in one of the studios with city views and those views alone were worth the price of admission- absolutely breathtaking! The view inside the room, however, was not as swell. The bed was comfy enough but some of the furniture was a little too broken-in. Specifically, a plush chair and ottoman that had been positioned near the slider to the balcony looked as if Cat Woman had broken in one night and had her way with the upholstery on it. The corner of the bathroom counter might have been gnawed on, too. Not sure bathroom countertops are the best source of fiber, but who am I to judge?

    Overall, the location had great views and felt safe. The staff was super friendly and professional. The room was definitely run down, but I guess that might add to the nostalgia of the property for some people. I would stay here again for an event at Yamashiro or at Magic Castle just for convenience sake, but otherwise I think I'd pass on a second trip to the HHH until they remodel.

    I won't come here agaaaaaaaiiiiiiin!!! Fridge in the room is locked and you need to ask for the key in the front desk, otherwise you can't use the fridge. And you are forbidden to budge anything in the fridge, except for a little space for your own, otherwise they will charge you for fee! Also, I can't bear a hotel provide non-free wifi connection in this world!!

    When I walked in was greeted with sparkling lemon juice in a champagne glass, was given a big bag of goodies for the room, and really had the best staff I have come by in a hotel.  
    I have stayed at Two Bunch Palms, Four Seasons, Beverly Wilshire, and a lot of others, and this staff was on it!  
    The room was not bad for the price, was a little out dated, but still pretty nice, and very very clean plus we had a jacuzzi bath.  
    View was great over looked Hollywood and you could see the Griffith Park Observatory, was with a group of girlfriends and we were really happy with our stay.  Oh yea, and our room was right below Yamashiro (my favorite resturant), they gave us a key to go through their gate for easy access.
    Would seriously stay here again, especially because of the staff, I was really really impressed!!!

    I absolutely love this hotel. For a good price by Hollywood standards, you can have great service and a huge room with a view of the Hollywood Hills or even better downtown Hollywood. The one bedroom suites are the best. Its like having your own apartment in the heart of Hollywood.

    The hotel is witihn walking distance to the Knitting Factory and the Hollywood/Highland complex as well as the Chinese Theater.

    The pool area is a visual paradise and has to be one of the best in the area and it is usually empty. In the past I have typically stayed at the Highland Gardens next door, but this is such a better value and much more private.

    A free small breakfast is offered each morning down the hill at the sister property Magic Castle Hotel. The corner rooms seem to have the largest patios and best views.

    Some people may find the rooms a bit dated but it doesn't seem to bother me because of the mellow vibe the hotel offers.

    UPDATE: Just stayed again on 11/06/09 and was just as pleased as always. They even had my favorite room 306 ready with a bottle of wine, small chocolate cake and a personalized card telling me to have a great time at the Pixies show. The customer service is outstanding.

    First off, you have to check in down the street from the hotel.  Drive down to the magic castle and check in at the hotel there, then drive back up the hill to your hotel.  It's very strange!!!

    Next, we had to park in a alley and walk up two flights of stairs, around the building and back down one flight of stairs to get to our room.  There are no elevators, so if you have a lot of bags you WILL get a workout.

    I posted picture of our room for all of you to see.  There were holes in the walls and the bathroom sink looked like it was going to fall over because the base was broken. Every wall was dirty and really needed to be painted.  The carpet was stained.  The tv was old and it was located in the kitchen!!! Yes, I said in the kitchen!!  So you can't see it from the chair in the room because there is a post in the way.  Oh, and they DO NOT have cable so you just get three local channels.

    On a good note, the room didn't smell and the bedding was nice. The view was nice, but it's over looking the alley.

    One last thing, don't try and check in early because not a single room was ready.  We had to wait until 3 pm, then stand in line, then drive back up the hill to the hotel. They also add a $10.00 parking fee onto your bill at the end, that they do not advise you of when you check in.

    Over all, this is a weird place!  Not horrible, but a standard two star hotel.  It's about the same as a Motel 6, without the cable tv and with nice sheets.

    This place goes above and beyond when it comes to making sure their guests feel welcomed. I have yet to experience customer service of this level at such a reasonably priced hotel. Not only is the location ideal (a short walk to hollywood boulevard), but it is also run by genuinely nice people who are helpful, attentive, and extremely likeable. You won't want to leave! There are complimentary snacks at the front desk, as well as a large selection of DVD's that you can take up to your room for no additional cost. Ask for suggestions of places to eat, drink, explore...they'll have plenty of options! If you are tired and would like to skip the "hike" up your room, ask for a ride-they have a shuttle. The rooms are a little outdated, so if you are expecting flat screen tv's and/or state-of-the-art kitchens, you may wanna look somewhere else (although the views certainly make up for this). If you are looking for a comfortable place to crash after touring Los Angeles and don't want to hurt your budget, this is the place. I can't recommend it enough.

    It is with a smile that I recall my experiences at the Hollywood Hills Hotel.

    After a long flight, a hectic airport experience, a hard sell at the car rental place, and whipping through LA traffic for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised to arrive at the hotel. Located a block away from Sunset, I was pleasantly greeted as I walked up pristine marble steps to a lobby leading out to a clean pool. The employee greeted me with smiles and offered me a delicious lemonade and candy to bring to my room. I'm a sucker for candy. Amazing that my childhood went as well as it did with my penchant for taking candy from strangers.

    We checked in and the employee proceeded to tell us how to get to our room, which involved driving down the street, turning at the corner, up a hill, through a gate... he then explained that this hotel and the Magic Castle Hotel shared a lobby and basically, the hotel I was seeing belonged to the Magic Castle. Bummer, cause this hotel seems pretty nice.

    So, we get into our car and drive up the hill and thought the gate to our hotel. I see the hotel, and start telling the better half that we are not staying here. From the outside, the building looks terrible. I don't care about the candy, the $100/night price (a bargain according to the pricing of nearby hotels) or the lemonade at this point, I am not stepping foot inside this hotel.

    The better half convinces me to just check out the room. I basically have tears in my eyes, this hotel is so terrible and run down looking from the outside. So, we walk up several flights of stairs (please note, no elevators for those that need one) and walk past other peoples hotel rooms and realize that there are several people that live here full time.

    Seeing the room was sweet relief. Not fancy by any means, but the room was large with a balcony. Coming equipped with kitchen area and stove, plus a BEAUTIFUL view of the city I was gearing up to call home, I really couldn't have asked for more. The bed was so comfortable, the bathroom was spacious, and the hotel has some of the best, kindest, "we give great customer service" employees of all time. Confused about the layout of the city, they patiently answered by inane questions and gave me all the candy I could ask for with a smile. I have stayed here several times after this trip, and have always loved this hotel.

    Very happy with our experience at HHH.  Yes, the rooms could use a bit of an update, but the staff is absolutely exceptional.  The views were nice and did I mention, the staff is outstanding? :)  Easy walk to the boulevard and the living room space and separate bedroom accommodated our family perfectly.  Will definitely recommend to friends and stay again when in town.

    This is a value experience.

    The accommodations are subpar but the location, the pool and the price are great.  Overall, I would go back again with the understanding that this is more of a Motel than a Hotel.

    I really enjoyed my stay at the Hollywood Hills! I stayed in a studio up the hill from the main hotel. While the room was a bit dated, the view from the balcony was breathtaking! The hotel is in a great location. Hollywood Blvd is a short walk away. I was able to jump on public transportation to West Hollywood and the L.A. Farmers Market.

    The hotel staff is awesome! They are friendly and attentive. I have rarely experienced this level of customer service. The welcoming staff is reason enough to stay here.

    Yes, it was a bit dilapidated, and Room 301 impossible to find without assistance, but the room was clean, the mattress and bedding comfy and new. The staff deserves credit for their attentiveness and pleasance. Nick was extraordinary! The view from our room was stunning, and we enjoyed it thoroughly sitting on the balcony each morning and evening. Thank you for the free breakfast, free snacks, free wi-fi, and the inspired gardens of the Yamashiro Restaurant.

    What the Hollywood Hills Hotel lacks in luxe it makes up for in location and ambiance. I believe the "hotel" is actually a former apartment complex (some of the units are still apartments). Our room is a one bedroom apartment with a handy little kitchen, comfy king size bed, sofa bed, bathroom with two sinks and tube style tv. It's very clean and well equipped with shampoo, soap, coffee and kitchen items.
    I don't believe there's any other hotel in the area where you could stay in the Hollywood Hills above the traffic and crowds of LA with the beautiful view of the city and the homes overlooking it.  It's very quiet and private. There's a beautiful pool to hang out at. I also wouldn't recommend staying here if you don't have a car unless you're a professional mountain climber. The walk down is fine, but the walk back up is a killer.  The hotel staff are super accommodating and friendly and will give you a lift. Nevertheless, the hotel is within walking distance of the extremely touristy Hollywood Blvd, a lot of which is very seedy and depressing. Fortunately, it's also very close to almost everything else in LA that you would want to visit. P.S. Skip Venice Beach.

    Like other reviewers have said, there are pros and cons to staying at the Hollywood Hills Hotel. In my opinion, the pros far outweighed the cons. The rates are extremely low for the area, and the location can't be beat. Our room-- a sudio-- was spacious, and we had a great view of the hills and downtown from our private balcony. The staff was friendly, the poolside continental breakfast was definitely a highlight, and the bed was really comfortable. We enjoyed an early morning swim in the pool, which had a bit of debris resting at the bottom, but was otherwise clean.

    The furniture (other than the bed, thankfully) was dingy and frankly, kind of gross, and the bathroom fixtures and cabinets had seen better days. Our kitchenette featured a small gas oven, which gave off an odor that lead us to believe it was leaking a bit. We slept with the balcony doors ajar just in case...

    That said, the hotel is a really solid value, and should we visit LA in the future, we'll probably book again.

    I love this place!!

    The friendly staff, incredible breathtaking views, and spacious and clean rooms are the reasons I keep coming back! Plus it's conveniently located in West Hollywood.

    I highly recommend this hotel.

    We stayed only one night. Four girls, and we loved it! The staff is amazingly nice. Nick was there at our check in and he was way cool and totally helpful. Everything we asked we got the answer we hoped to get. Half our party was going to the Bruno Mars concert and they provide a shuttle to the hollywood bowl and back free of charge! The balcony is great, very spacious and the view just amazing. The rooms were clean, beds where so comfy with down blankets and very fluffy pillows. We had the 2 bed city view suite. That's 2 beds, fully stocked kitchen (I believe all rooms have a kitchen) and a sitting room. Tv in both rooms. The bathroom had a full 2 sink counter and large mirror and a walk in closet. the bathroom is private and the shower is clean. The pool was SOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL. Views all around. Even though there is a lot of plants all around the area...I was still able to get some pictures. It was a very clean area to lounge around. Hollywood Boulevard is literally a block away but remember that the hotel is in the hills. We did have to walk down the hill road but it was all in good fun. No heels! hah. Check out was easy, all i was charged was an 11$ parking fee. At check in they charge a security deposit of only 50$ and they took the 11$ out of that and refunded the rest. Breakfast was just bagels fruits and few other basics. We passed. No big deal. We would definitely stay here again. You really feel like your living it up in the hills of hollywood.

    Stood here on a Tuesday night and it was great! Had a great view of Los Angeles from our room, the staff was very nice. You check in at The Magic Castle Hotel lobby. They offer complimentary snacks and DVD's, as well as a morning breakfast. Also offer a shuttle from the rooms to the Magic Castle Hotel lobby where the breakfast is.

    Not your typical hotel, and looks like apartments. You don't want to go in expecting to stay at the Ritz Carlton. The place does need a bit of a renovation, but nothing which I would consider a dump. We had access to two pools, didn't go swimming as the pool at the Hollywood Hills Hotel Apt (the one with the pagoda) was really cold. Walking distance to the Yamashiro Hollywood restaurant and away from all the excitement of Hollywood, but close enough to get there on time if your running late. Took us less then 10 minutes to get to the ArcLight to catch our movie on time even as we did run late. Will definitely stay here again if we decide to hang out in Hollywood again.

    Well that was disappointing. First of all all the staff was just hanging around the bar not helping us and another couple who came in. It smelled dirty but we said lets give it a try as we live almost  next to the restaurant. The whole restaurant was empty and we just came in to get some appetizers. A very unfriendly lady pointed us to some table in the back and when we asked for a window table they said it's only for reservations. What the hell. There was nobody there. Like every night... It's obvious why not many people go here anymore.
    Last time for us and for our friends I guess.

    If I could give this place 10 stars, I would.  Here's why:

    When booking the reservation over the phone I was asked the typical "What brings you to out hotel?", I told them my husband and I were celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary adn we would be seeing a concert at the Hollywood bowl that night so we wanted to be close without all the LA commotion.  They said how they would make it "extra special" which I smiled and thanked them but expected nothing.

    HOWEVER!!!! When we arrived we were greeted upon check-in at the Magic Castle (NOTE: you HAVE to check in at the Magic Castle on Franklin, not at the Hollywood Hills Hotel property itself), we were greeting with champagne flutes of sparkling lemonade.  Cute, tasty, but no big deal.  The staff was extremely sweet, courteous and ready to help with anything and everything.  When we got to our room which was room 504, the center, top floor, most amazing view room, they had put rose petals all over the bed and left us a bottle of Blue Fin red wine, a printed out card with our names telling us Congratulations and Happy anniversary and also an anniversary cake from a local bakery.  Talk about going above and beyond!!! I was soooooo touched and in awe at the details they had actually gone through to make our stay so special.

    We had dinner at yamashiro's which was amazing and only a few steps away from our room.  Then they picked us up and drove us to the Hollywood bowl, for free, and picked us up! Literally a 2 minute drive door to door.  Plus they drop off back at your room, no hotel lobby or anything.  I can not give enough praise about the hotel at all.

    It is not luxurious, it is definitely "run-down"-ish, BUT it has charm, views and AMAZING customer service!! Plus the pool is fabulous!! We will definitely be returning!! For only $163 a night you can NOT beat this hotel!!

    This Hotel/Apartment is seriously the bomb!  The furniture is dated but the views, location and staff make up for it.  The beds are amazingly comfortable.  This place is located in the Hollywood Hills with spectacular views of the city and the hills.   You will have the comforts of home.  A kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom unless you have a studio, then no bedroom obviously. I dealt with Kevin who is so nice, charming and accommodating.  Nick was awesome as well.   Runyon canyon for hiking is three small blocks away and you will enjoy the view of the city at the top.  Hollywood blvd is one block away and a short drive to Santa Monica blvd, Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach.  However, I looked forward each night returning to my "apartment" to relax and enjoy the views and the feeling of home away from home.  You are situated on a hill and have to walk down to the office, which is at the magical castle for breakfast and snacks and it is a good hike back up.  But come on now y'all its good for the heart, lungs and body.  I will definitely be back and it won't be soon enough.  Enjoy your stay....
